This is unfortunate. :(

Alan: Does this mean that we will have to use a new CONFIG_
macro instead of testing is_sony_vaio_laptop? If so then
I will submit a new patch with "#ifdef CONFIG_SONY_PNPBIOS"s
in it and I'll let you futz with the kernel configuration

There should be no numerically named entries in /proc/bus/pnp;
you should see only the "devices" file and the "boot" directory.
You should see numerically named entries in /proc/bus/pnp/boot
for each device.
